    Don't you just love these well educated farm stores? I've never had white leghorns so I didn't know any better but I bought a supposed "white leg horn pullet" from RK. And once I went to another farm store I realized it's not a white leghorn. Or at least not pure bred. SO. What kind of chick do I have? Or is it just a mix breed chick? Help a sister out!! :p it has unique markings and fuzz down the sides of its legs. [​IMG]

    In comparison it's about the same size as all the other chicks.

    Not close to a leghorn for sure. Perhaps a cochin or cochin cross?
